The project involves both in-depth investigation of a relevant topic, related works, and development a significant and functional component of a distributed system and/or application. Each student selects a research and development project in consultation in an appropriate academic or research staff working in the area of distributed systems and applications and carries out the work under his/her supervision. It is also possible for a group of two or three students to undertake a project that requires the development of a large distributed system or application. However, each student contribution must be distinct and clearly identified as that forms a basis of each student's evaluation. The project is to be completed in one semester although we encourage students to exchange ideas with supervisors in the previous semester. Students are also encouraged to carry out the project in industry with joint industry-academic supervision.
